There’s no shame in not being the sharpest kid in your college class. Some people are simply smarter than others. But when the kid who’s smarter than you is an 11-year-old boy…well, that’s a little harder to accept. But that’s precisely the situation some students are finding themselves in at the University of Toledo in Ohio, because one of their classmates just happens to be a child genius named Daniel Liu.
“This kid is 11 and in my organic chemistry class,” wrote Cigdem Kahyaoglu, 19, who shared a picture of her youngest classmate on Twitter recently. “He said if we have questions to just email him.” Since then the tweet has been liked more than 230k times, but Daniel (who goes to high school but takes some classes at the university) is no stranger to fame. He’s already met Bill Nye (the Science Guy) and he’s even met Obama when collecting the $10,000 scholarship that he won at the White House Science Fair. Did we mention he’s only eleven?
